The national Norwegian cyber security conference HackCon was established in 2005 by the network of Norwegian security experts. The goal was to create practical cyber security courses and conference combined with a social meeting place to meet the future challenges within cyber security. The network had good relations with KINS (Information security organization for municipalities) and Honeynor, and together the three groups agreed on arranging HackCon #1 during February 8th and 9th 2006. Conventions are usually quite expensive, but for HackCon it's important to keep the price down. The reason is that we want the information spread throughout the community, and make it possible for most people to attend. By doing this, the attendees will have the best possible background when meeting future challenges.
